MINI is unveiling Urban Cabin at London Design Festival (16th – 24th Sept) in collaboration with Sam Jacob Studio, which will represent the brand’s point of view on future city shared spaces.
Urban Cabin is a micro-house designed by the architects at MINI LIVING, and will be based on London’s Southbank during LDF. MINI LIVING has collaborated with London-based architects Sam Jacob Studio to build two modules which represent London’s Character; a shared kitchen, symbolizing the importance of food markets in modern culture, and a micro-library where visitors are encouraged to share books in a city where the number of public libraries are falling every year
The proportion of adults visiting public libraries in England has fallen by almost a third over the last decade. In a bid to resurrect the library as a space to learn, borrow and meet people, a mixture of modern design books and timeless classics reflecting the past 400 years of London life will be in the space’s library. From 20th – 24th September, book lovers will be able to come together to swap personal favourites for London themed books from the last 400 years.
